A few of my favorite pals and I take an annual trip to the Gap but we have made something called the "Gap Loop".
We leave Lexington, KY on US421 to US58 to Johnson City, TN.
Johnson City, TN to the Gap and back. Johnson City to the Blue Ridge at Boone, NC. Boone, NC to Buena Vista, VA via the parkway. We close her down by taking US60 from Buena Vista back to Lexington! 1700 miles roundtrip!!!
I live my year for those four days!
Oh yeah and my special somone too!!
